Its highly likely that you have touched and used messaging in a number of everyday personal and business situations. These range from:
requesting a balance or withdrawing money at a Cash Point/ ATM, as well as topping up a Mobile Phone, to initiating a Banking transfer in a branch or online.
using an E-commerce site to order your groceries, cinema tickets, or buy the latest gadget or fashionable item of clothing, the merchant/ retailer will manage the order and its status update through messaging to ensure safe fulfilment of the goods.
the tracking of goods in Logistics that are being delivered from a manufacturer, through the supply chain, to a distributor; retailer or even to the end customer; think DHL or UPS; where the goods are signed for on receipt and their movement is electronically recorded at all stages of the journey.
where an Insurance Quote is being requested either on-line, over the phone or in a branch, this is sent to a decision and pricing engine that returns the quote, the terms of the policy and the price/ payment options.
meter readings for Utility Supplies such as Water, Gas, and Electric that are automated and provide more accurate bills and feedback to the customer on consumption, to Smart Buildings having sensors that control a buildings temperature and lighting dependent on weather and occupancy.
Stock Market trades and share price updates that operate at a high velocity and volume.
Travel availability and reservation for hotels, flights and trains.
... and these are just a few examples, the possibilities are endless.
